I started taking atripla last night around 8:30PM and it is around 8:30AM and I am still feeling light headed or in other words I am still feeling somewhat stoned. I took today off from work and usually I wake up at 5:30AM. I am would like to know if there is anything else I can take in the morning that can help me to feel normal. I don't think I can drive or go to work like this. I do not drink coffee but if it helps then I can start drinking coffee in the morning. Will this go away with some time or after few days or weeks? Thanks

Response from Dr. Young

If this was your first dose of Atripla, rest easy-- typically these symptoms improve quickly, day by day. I'd expect you to be more or less back to normal by Monday.
